"Killer" Curry Contest Sends Two to Hospital
Kismot, an Indian and Bangladeshi restaurant in Edinburgh, serves the "Kismot Killer," a curry made, its website claims, from "the world's hottest chillies according to the Guinness Book of Records."
This past weekend, the restaurant hosted an eating competition featuring its fearsome "Kismot Killer," and two contestants were in such pain that they had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital.
An American contestant, who finished in second place, compared the pain to "being chainsawed in the stomach with hot sauce on the chainsaw."
"I was in so much pain I wasn't aware of what was going on around me and when I got to hospital they gave me medicine for the indigestion.Yes, it's the restaurant's fault that you willingly entered a contest featuring the world's (reputed) hottest chiles and then felt ill. You even signed a disclaimer, yet, still, the restaurant is wrong.
"I don't think the restaurant should do it any more as I think there are a lot less painful ways to raise money for charity."
Here are a couple videos of people trying the "Kismot Killer."
